The Town of Duck is a terrific place to vacation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is a small village with lots of good places to dine and shop, but still has the feel of a relaxing, small, quiet, ocean village. The town has a very good website that lets you know what is going on and you can link to it here. A copy of the Town of Duck Brochure for 2013 is available on this website. The town provides much for the vacationer to do (if you want to get away from sitting on the beach or around the pool for awhile). There is the new soundfront boardwalk and at the town center there are various venues for a variety of activities for kids through adults. Particularly check out the link on their website to “Visitors & Recreation” and Events. You can view their photos of events on their web site or by clicking on this link. And you can view the 2013 Fourth of July Parade video on their web site or by clicking on the video below:

There are a number of Museums and other places to visit that are too numerous to list here, but links to them can be found on some of the sites above. However, the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras should be mentioned because the person writing this has interacted with them after finding a piece of an old shipwreck on the beach in front of their oceanfront house after Hurricane Sandy.
The person writing this has one house on Poteskeet Drive and a second house on Sea Tern Drive in Duck. Check out the links for more information about the Poteskeet Drive Neighborhood or about the Sea Tern Drive Neighborhood.
